“Mac OS X 10.4.2 will aim to improve the user experience of Tiger’s Dashboard by introducing a manager for widgets, Think Secret has learned. While earlier versions of the update to Tiger have included tweaks to the installation and management of Dashboard widgets, the latest builds reportedly incorporate a slick-looking widget manager that enables users to quickly enable, disable, or delete their widgets. Apple provided build 8C40 of Version 10.4.2 to developers on Friday, sources said,” Nick dePlume reports for Think Secret.
“In the newest [Mac OS X Tiger developer] builds, the ‘More Widgets’ button located on the right side of the screen — directly above the widget bar — is replaced by a new ‘Manage Widgets’ option. This button launches the new widget manager within Dashboard,” dePlume reports. “While Think Secret reported earlier that the Version 10.4.2 update was set for release to the Internet and retail boxes of Tiger this past week, testers encountered a number of bugs in build 8C33 and other seeds. Build 8C40 fixes a number of these bugs… According to sources, Apple is not reporting any issues with the latest build.”
